  • In June 2014 Ofgem launched a review of the market for new electricity connections. Following their findings, Ofgem tasked all Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) with developing a Code of Practice (COP) in consultation with stakeholders; this was done through the Energy Networks Association (ENA).

    The Competition in Connections (CiC) Code of Practice was approved by Ofgem in June 2015, following extensive consultation. The revised document was approved and issued in July 2015, with an implementation date of October 2015. It includes arrangements to make changes, so that it can evolve over time. This included the establishment of an industry panel to oversee those changes.
